Education, the process of establishing habits of critical and independent appraisal of information for the purpose of intellectually developing the whole person. Socrates held that the beginning of real learning was the realization that we do not know. Education can take place formally in schools with teachers, students, courses, books and activities. It can also take place informally in homes, streets, or meeting places when ideas and information are exchanged.
